3.1 Pupil Entitlement and Opportunities
The Academy truly places value on the experiences gained from every aspect of the curriculum and co-curriculum. The Pupil Entitlement ensures that all pupils have access to activities and enriching experiences that will enable them to grow as a person as well as an academic learner. These opportunities include: working within the community, access to outside speakers, residential excursions and performing on stage. By the end of their Academy career, all pupils, no matter what their background, will have had the opportunity to access every activity within the Entitlement. This will be tracked by subject teachers and heads of department to ensure that all pupils have access to this entitlement.
